We enjoyed the trip very much. We got to see Minke whales and dolphins. The rest of the trip was enjoyable as we saw some spectacular Icelandic scenery. Would definitely recommend this trip.
The whale watching was brilliant and a must when you go to Iceland. There is never a guarantee of seeing them but we saw a whole family of Orca whales. A dream come true. The Gulfoss and Geysir Tour was lovely too although I wish we had had more time at all the stops to take it in more. However, for a full day, could not have asked for a more enjoyable day!
Yes, I absolutely loved my experience with the exception that we did not see any whale but rather dolphins.
Very professional, excellent logistics, no delays, very good guidance and explanations. Fantastic scenery and country and very nice people. Even the bad weather - bad for us, non-Icelanders - was much easier to stand with such well organized excursion.
We went whale watching in April. I think we were lucky with the weather, as the water was very flat and it was sunny and due to this we saw lots of dolphins, porpoises and minke whales; they just surrounded the boat and we were able to take lots of photos. The trip lasted over two hours. I recommend wearing warm clothing and a hat, but you can use the warm jumpsuits that they provide on the boat to wear over your clothes. Refreshments are provided on the boat. We had to wait around for about forty five minutes to be picked up for the golden circle trip after getting off the boat. No one really told us what we had to do or who would pick us up, so we had to ask at the ticket office. I enjoyed the golden circle tour, but wish we had had longer to stay at the drop off points.
After an initial problem of the bus coming to collect us 50 minutes early we had a great trip. We saw Minke whales, a Humpack, harbour porpoises and lots of sea birds on the boat trip. Well worth it, especially if you haven't had the opportunity to see them before. The Golden Circle Express tour was both interesting and informative with lots of stop off points to take pictures. I would recommend this trip.
the whales watching tour is good but the Geysir express tour is much below average as the guide is not good ( sorry we knew that ones has to make the living but we can barely understand the guide)
